I am sure you all know El Kabeir, the favored player of the last race that was held in Jerome Stakes on January the 3rd; the race where he had the biggest offs of winning, the race that was supposed to determine the pace of how the New Year will be going. In that race, El Kabeir managed to pull off a great run, a run that maybe will be talked for whole year and for the next to come. With the 4-3/4-length victory and the $200,000 in his pocket, he is most certainly a happy man now.
The race that was held in Aqueduct Racetrack grabbed many people’s attention, like any other holyday race. The seats that are made for the spectators were full; there were people standing on their feet and people jumping to see how the race was going. Of course, there were many people betting, and im sure that the ones who betted on El Kabeir are smiling now-we encourage you to do the same on the sports forums of jackpot bet online and you may end up winnin the jackpot like any of the lucky people that guessed El Kabeir to be the winner.
Despite the fact that he failed to make an impressive start of the race and was struggling to join the moving train in the middle of the circle, El Kabier managed to pull off a stunner, coming from the wide side of the ground in the first lap, to the front of the train in the second and he stood there until the end of the race.
At this very moment Zayat Stables’ El Kabeir is the first potential starter and he is on the No.1 place on the Kentuck Derby May 2 after managing to grab 10 points in the 70-yard Jerome.
The favored El Kabeir failed to make the start that everybody at Zayat Stables were hoping for, and was on the 4th and 5th place among the first lap. He went pass C.C. Lopez and Ostrolenka to make it to the 2nd place before struggling with Nasa for several miles. He took over the advantage and stood there for the end of the race with the final time of 1:44:69 which is considered a very good time for this particular racing ground.
His teammate C.C. Lopez commented that he tried to beat the doors and to start before they were fully opened, that’s why be stumbled a bit and had a late start. Lopez managed to bring him up without panic, and talked him into staying focused and continuing the race. With the best horses in their team, they should wait for the door to fully open before trying to play smart. The horses will run past any other clever jockey who will successfully beat the doors, so there is no place for panic in Zayat Stables’ jockeys.
